Book Description:

Perceptions of white working-class communities are commonly discussed, but the views held by these communities themselves are less often considered. This book provides the first substantial analysis of white working-class perspectives on issues of multiculturalism and change in the United Kingdom, giving a platform to these silent voices. Based on over two hundred interviews, White Working Class Voices presents startling results that challenge the preconceptions of politicians, policy makers, practitioners, and researchers. Exploring how white working-class communities came to be framed as racist, resistant to change, and disconnected from politics, Harris Beider suggests a new and progressive agenda for how this often misrepresented group can be fully included in a modern, diverse Britain.
